From the manufacturer...
The Sterling Audio ST51 condenser microphone is an absolute anomaly when it comes to budget priced mics, not to mention it’s a condenser with Class-A FET circuitry! The ST51 is a clear rival to microphones a few hundred dollars more, and provides essential features that many have failed to make their foundation. Not least of these benefits of the Sterling ST51 is its incredibly low noise, which allows for higher gain without the annoying hiss, leaving your recordings clean and defined. For fans of the Rode NT1A, the Sterling Audio ST51 is a definite must-try, as it stands to be even more quiet, equally rich and especially more affordable.
